Monteiro L. F., Arvidsson N., Birkinshaw J. (2008). Being in the Out Crowd: Why Do Some Subsidiaries Become Isolated - And Does it Matter? MIT Sloan Management Review, 49(2), pp. 13-14.
The article discusses results of a study on the flow of information among corporate subsidiaries performed by L. Felipe Monteiro and Julian Birkinshaw at the London Business School, and Niklas Arvidsson at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden.The researchers found that poorly performing subsidiaries are less likely to engage in knowledge transfers with other subsidiaries than stronger performing ones.Useful exchanges occur largely between subsidiaries that are seen by themselves and others as high-performing.
